Chopard, the Swiss based luxury watch brand, was founded back in 1860 by Louis-Ulysse Chopard. Initially established in Sonvillier, Switzerland, the firm was relocated to Geneva in 1937. After running a successful business for decades, the Chopard family sold the brand to a young and ambitious watchmaker, Karl Scheufele III in 1963. The brand was no longer restricted to selling watches; Scheufele soon began a jewelry segment too.
This elegantly designed watch for men comes with a 36 mm, two tone 18 K rose gold and polished stainless steel case presented on a matching bracelet with hidden folding clasp. It has a pure white dial with rose gold Roman numerals at the 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock, 9 o’clock and 12 o’clock position and matching hour and minute hands. The dial of this beautiful time piece from the Happy Sport Collection by Chopard has 7 floating 0.39 carat diamond pieces that shine bright on the white dial and give it a fashionable appearence. It has a fixed rose gold and stainless steel bezel.
The Chopard 278488-9001 comes with the reliable quartz analog movement. It also comes with the useful date feature. The date window is positioned between 4 o’clock and 5 o’ clock and offers an easy glance at the time.
It is fitted with the strong sapphire crystal glass which is known for its scratch-resistant properties. The glass is non-reflective too so you wouldn’t face problem viewing the time even in bright light. The Chopard 278488-9001 is water-resistant to a depth of 30 meters.
Apart from selling a range of beautiful watches, Chopard also sells various other products including writing instruments, eyewear, fragrances, leather and clocks.
1993 saw a massive revolution in the field of luxury watches for women when Chopard became the first brand in the world to combine the different worlds of steel and diamonds, in a manner that left watch aficionados spellbound. The brainchild of Caroline Scheufele, Artistic Directior and Co-President of Chopard, and her brother, Karl Friedrich, the Happy Sport collection soon became the favourite of all connoisseurs. The idea that ‘diamonds are happiest when they are free’ was suggested by Karin Scheufele, their mother with the release of the Happy Diamonds collection in the 1970s, and is further exemplified by the Happy Sport- a masterful blend of the contemporary and traditional.
The most distinguishing feature of the Happy Sport is its revolutionary incorporation of ‘floating diamonds’. Each watch from this line boasts free moving diamonds just above the dial, most commonly gold plated. The technology in this novel design involves two parallel layers of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass, with the cavity in between being an ideal size to allow free movement of the diamonds, while preventing toppling over. The exact technology, however, is maintained as a closely guarded secret by the brand, adding to the watch’s intrigue. The resultant effect is that of a playful, chic watch that retains the impeccable assembly characteristic of Chopard. Variations of the diamonds include exquisitely crafted fish, four leaved clovers, and other such tranquil adornments.
Though initially launched in a circular shape, Chopard has gone on to make square and oval shaped cases in small and large sizes, made in stainless steel, 18K rose, yellow or white gold or a mix of rose gold and stainless steel. The crown is set with a sapphire cabochon. The dial, available in a range of hues, is silver guilloched in the centre, with some models being completely embedded with diamonds. It contains rhodiumed or gold toned hands and index markers, with a date window in most versions. The movement of the watch is either Quartz or mechanical self-winding, for precise timekeeping.
